Well, now I actually feel a lot better about David losing to Andy. Don't think he would've won anyway, but at least Murray carried that form on to win the final. Gotta give the man his props (now if he could only do this at slams )
Starting to think Rafa will never defend a hard court title in his entire career.
what a dismantling in the end :hatoff:
Murray was copying Djokovic. He hit harder than he usually does and went for the corners and moved Nadal around in the same way. He was even making the same "Uh-haaah" grunt!
I expected Murray to win, but wow, he really just took over from the middle of the second set onwards, and Rafa really faltered badly. Andy put forth the man's performance today and Nadal fell away embarrassingly. A great win for Andy, should be extremely confidence boosting for him going forward. Maybe now this is the time he's finally really arrived, and will become a full-fledged member of the big 4.
Just shows that when anyone is playing well Nadull is helpless. If Federer wasn't such a choker, Murray could bring it at the slams, and Fakervic didn't go off the boil for 3 years Nadull would have 0 slams. Great performance from Murray, ate the moonballing clown alive :yeah:
Great job Andy. First time I've been impressed with you.I hope that 6-0.....can give you confidence going into 2012. You'll need to hit ALL YOUR FOREHANDS like that. Don't be a wimp, hit through those shots with authority. Otherwise, you're going to get hammered again by the top 3. Also still need to work on serve consistency. Show up or ship out!
